Heartland Payment Systems has announced an agreement with VersaPay to offer its customers VersaPay ARC eInvoicing system as a means of replacing paper invoices delivered by mail.
Under a reseller agreement between Heartland and VersaPay, Heartland is providing US small and mid-size businesses with the capability to transform their manual invoicing operations into an efficient electronic system that delivers invoices online and provides customers with the option to pay using their card.
“The VersaPay ARC eInvoicing platform is a particularly useful solution for any business that traditionally sends customers paper invoices, especially small to mid-size businesses such as accounting, law, insurance, manufacturing, distribution and many others,” said Kris Herrin, chief of emerging products, Heartland Payment Systems. “Paper invoices typically cost a few dollars to process from end to end, and it can take thirty to ninety days to receive payment. With VersaPay ARC eInvoicing, each invoice costs less than a postage stamp to process and payments are received days or even weeks earlier.”
“Heartland is uniquely positioned to deliver all the benefits of our ARC eInvoicing system nationwide with its world-class reputation and sales distribution network,” said Todd Whiton, president of VersaPay Payment Technology Solutions. “The opportunity to change the way invoices are issued and paid between U.S. businesses is enormous, and we believe this strategic partnership with Heartland will broaden the acceptance of our technology.”
